Do You Know this Hero?

Now, why would there be a sculpture of a husky in Central Park, you ask? Well, this is Balto, the dog who saved Nome.
He led a team of sled dogs through a treacherous blizzard in 1925 to deliver medicine that prevented many residents from getting a bad disease. Every year a special race called the Itidarod is held in Alaska to remember this brave canine! This statue of Balto helps everyone know how important he was a long time ago.
